This is a very detailed peer editing checklist/process for a persuasive research paper in MLA format. It is intended to walk students through the peer editing process step-by-step and to ensure that they've checked all aspects of the paper from format to content to success of the argument. I use this with my English 12 students, but it could be used successfully with any level high school (or even middle school) English course. It also allows students to learn more about the research process by evaluating another student's writing. In addition, the student writer then has thorough, concrete suggestions to help with the revision process -- especially helpful when the teacher simply doesn't have time to get through all student rough drafts due to time or class size. Each of my students peer edited two essays -- which meant they then went home with two critiques of their essays. Works great!
